I've never done this blogging stuff before, and have already sent what I wrote earlier into cyberspace by accident. So, if you find it, let me know. Spent the weekend visiting with Brian Fitzpatrick, who is working on THE KILLER INSIDE ME as assistant to the Assistant Director. He plans to direct, and we plan for him to direct MISTER WEEDEATER, one of my favorites of my short stories. We'll see how that pans out.

Have written a straight to DVD movie of Swamp Thing, and a ten minute film that's supposed to go on the JONAH HEX movie DVD, when that happens, or so I'm told. We'll see. Currently, I'm writing articles for Italian publications, and then I'll finish up the revisions on THE BOTTOMS which is supposed to be directed by Bill Paxton. Beyond that, a short story, and then the new Hap and Leonard novel, which I've started. Also, should have a couple of surprises soon, or so I hope; looks like some things I've wanted to do for a long time are coming to pass. More as I know for sure.


  1. Hi, Joe. I was thrilled to see you following my blog. Gotta say I love your books. I'm so glad we met at the Tyler library event, and hope to see you again at another event.

    I have been spreading the word about how great your books are.

  2. Welcome to the world of blogging! I started up one a few weeks, too. You'll get the hang of it soon enough.

    Looking forward to seeing The Bottoms, and anything else that hits the big screen. I enjoyed watching Bubba Ho-Tep on the big screen in Nac and can't wait for a chance to see another.

  3. Wow - this is Big News: The Bottoms to be a movie!

    Welcome to blogging. It's fun, but not as much fun as reading your books. I do love your books, and The Bottoms is one of my favorites of all time. I think it could be a really great film, which of course is not true of all good books.

  4. I didn't realize Jonah Hex had been made into a movie? has it come out yet?
